Yep ... we definitely denied it. I remember hearing many times, "no, it's funk when the Dead do it!" or some such.

People tend to forget that of course the band wanted to have hits and wanted to be huge - they all do.

Even my beloved Kinks did the disco thing on Superman - one of their all-time biggest hits.

And on the reggae - yep Kingfish did By and By, and the Midnites did both By and By and Book of Rules.
